Delicious Chicken

Chicken breasts baked in a Dijon wine and cream sauce. Simple, quick, delicious.
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup grainy Dijon mustard
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  1. Heat oil in a heavy bottom fry pan. Add chicken breasts and lightly brown on both sides, approximately 4 minutes per side.
  2. Stir together mustard and wine. Add to pan and allow to simmer lightly along with the chicken for 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in cream. Simmer another 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat. Place chicken pieces in a casserole dish. Pour hot cream mixture over and bake in 350º oven for 20 minutes. Half way through baking baste the meat with the sauce it's baking in. 


  1. If you don't care to use wine, what is the substitute ingredient?

    1. Chicken broth is a good substitute. Try adding 1/2 tsp soy sauce if using chicken broth it just gives it a wee bit of extra flavour.

  2. I generally use low sodium chicken broth in place of wine in some recipes. You may want to try that option.
